the senate special committee on aging examined the high incidents of faulty claims to medicare for powered wheelchairs. we'll hear from a medicare official who outlines a new pilot program looking to reduce future risks of error and fraud in the program. this is about two hours. >> so i apologize. i think we'll go ahead and get started. thank you for very much for being here and all of you who have come to this hearing. instead of reading my opening statement, i'll start by saying that some time ago, i don't watch a great deal of television but i would see ads on television regarding all kinds of mobility devices where people could, it appeared just call up and the companies would figure out some way for this person to own these mobility devices with little or no money down. it almost gave the impression they would insure you would pay nothing for that. obviously that is taxpayer money and looked to me to be very flagrantly in the face of anything that would have value for the american taxpayer. and it also seemed to me that people were taking advantage of this and probably jeopardizing pe
medicare for the 65 or older and retain traditional medicare for those younger than that. 51% know that mitt romney would keep the bush tax cut in place permanently. some knowledge -- a long way to go. next slide, please. 40%andidates'records -- know that carol taxes increased during barack obama's time in office -- decrease during barack obama's time in office. 25.4% no more jobs were created in the first term of barack obama then the last term of george bush. that is a claim you see back- and-forth in advertising about who lost jobs and gained jobs. public confusion is to be expected. 31% knew that when mitt romney was jet -- governor of massachusetts, job growth in massachusetts improved. a claim in which democrats are trying to muddy the waters. in a long way to go in terms of improving public knowledge. we see deceptions that have been reinforced a lot in advertisements. 53.8% know that the statements are not accurate. barack obama has dropped all work requirements for individuals receiving welfare. 53.8% now that is not accurate. the rest either have the answer ron or say the
medicare to pay for obamacare. now this is the same raiding medicare lie that romney has been pushing since august. >> romney: the president's plan cuts medicare -- excuse me -- well let's see -- there we go. by $716 billion. cut. >> jennifer: polititfact, the fact checker in looking at that statement rated it mostly false because here is the truth. president obama has made medicare more efficient by cutting costs in the program to the tune of $716 billion. that's cutting costs, not cutting patient care, not kicking people off of medicare, not cutting benefits, just cutting costs by making it more efficient. and then he reinvested those savings back into medicare to extend its life by eight years. and this is the kicker. paul ryan proposed the same thing in his budget but now that he has nothing better to run on, he and romney are attacking the president for the very same cuts that were in paul ryan's budget. these are the same proven myths and falsehoods that romney is going to say on wednesday night. these are the ones that his surrogates will repeat in the d
idea about how to come together. we will that the bush tax cuts expire. we will negotiate with medicare to get better drug prices. we have to find by year end about $235 billion in savings over 10 years. we can do that in the short term. >> do you believe that everybody in virginia should pay something in federal income tax? >> everyone pays taxes. >> the federal income tax. >> i would be open to the proposal to have some minimum tax level for everyone, but many pay higher taxes than governor romney does. >> the nominee of your party for the presidency, he believes that that 47% believe that they are victims. do you share that vision of america, and what would you do as senator about the 47%? >> the best idea of what to see someone will do in the future is what they have done in the past. if somebody has a job, taking care of themselves and providing for their family, we have cut taxes and made virginia much more business friendly, adding more than 300,000 net new jobs in the private sector. one of the other successes we had while i was governor was welfare reform. we wanted to lift peo
have worked their whole lives, paid into medicare. they are folks looking for jobs right now. these are folks out what to get back to work. these are folks looking to care for themselves. i agree with a congressman. the way we address this is we broaden the tax base, but you give people jobs so they are part of the system. that is how we have always functioned as society. when i talk about the american dream it is giving people those opportunities so they can climb one or two rungs on the ladder and leave their kids better off. we have got to on president -- to honor the parents and grandparents. we need to be involved in the social security system. >> on to this debate. republicans in this district and other districts are running tv ads hammering you and other democrats for supporting the president's health care overall, specifically what they say is a dangerous cuts to medicare by lowering payments to providers in the medicare advantage program. do you support that aspect of health care overall, and if so, what you say to seniors who are worried about their health care? >>

for an hour national defence to our domestic programs and medicare providers. this says i am not responsible. but this is not satisfy anybody because it does not solve the problem. the republicans consult the democrats and vice versa but people have to work together. you cannot work together unless we are here working. that is what i think is the point we want to drive home. why are we working these problems out? why do we have to wait until after any election to do the people's work? there are too many americans suffering and asking when congress will act like congress. they should pass legislation that will get signs to resolve the issues that need to be resolved. >> the republicans claim to be in favor of middle class tax reform. the president has called gum -- upon the congress to immediately enact middle-class tax relief. let's move forward and we agree on. we agreed to provide extended tax for 98% of the people. republicans have said we're not going to move together on what we agree on a lesser will also to agree to provide a number around a big tax breaks to people like mitt romney an
and romney are arguing over who is going to spend more money on medicare would need to have a reading debate and discussion on this country on how we slash medicare spending because if we do not, i believe we will find ourselves in the midst of a monetary collapsed as a result of continuing to borrow and spend money to the tune of 43 cents out of every dollar we spend. host: so what do you see on that particular issue? what is your prescription? pardon the expression. >> i oversaw the or form of medicaid in the mexico when i was governor of new mexico. we ticket from a fee-for- service model to a managed-care model. we saved hundreds of millions of dollars, set up better health care networks for the poor. i believe if the federal government would have a lot granted the state of new mexico 43% less money, and done away with all the strings and the mandate, i could've effectively oversee the delivery of health care to the fore. i think you apply that same template to medicare, health care for those over 65, get the federal government out of the health-care business completely , give it up to t
